Yeah I remember how stories about $600 toilet seats were spiked by the White House.

Ever see the West Wing episode when Christian Slater explained why a glass ashtray had to cost $400?  It actually made sense.

I'm not sure what the $600 toilet seats do, but I want one.

When discussing food stamps, there are two ways you can go:

1. Criticize the poor for buying food that is too fancy.
2. Criticize the poor for buying food that is not fancy enough.

Solution:  The poor get no food at all!

Clint Eastwood got it right when he said; "Barack Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people". Back then, I thought it was just a funny joke. Well, it's not funny anymore. When Boehner said; "Obamacare is a train wreck waiting to happen", I thought, that seems rather severe. The fact is, those 2 observations have been right on. What put Obama in the dog house was his statement; "If you like your current healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan". Guess that makes him a liar, now doesn't it? There was a time when bald faced lies would ruin a high level politician (ex. Richard Nixon). Obama and his appointees in the DOJ, IRS, ICE, EPA , Homeland Security, and Dept of State, have falsified their activities to the American people. I and many others, have come to the conclusion that Obama is intent on destroying the fundamental roots of the U.S. Constitution. He and his staff despise the guidance and pathways, that were laid out by our founding fathers. Obama has failed in almost all of his endeavors, and has become the worst president in our lifetime.

cameroncrazy1984: So again, why do we care?


Because we have a right to know how our money is being spent.

For example, If I buy a Big Mac, then I have a right to know exactly what a McDonald's manager buys with his or her paycheck.

Because that paycheck is my money, in some symbolic astral sense that does not correspond to any actual economic reality.

this. I really don't think there's a good reason that kind of info should not be disclosed but at the same time I suspect that a lot of the people interested in getting the info just want to turn it into an excuse for further cuts to SNAP.


I think the Democrats could win huge at the polls with one commercial series, entitled "My Mistake". Find a Republican who says "We shouldn't punish the rich for the poor's mistakes" (I know you'll be able to find someone who's said this or approximately this), then bring on those who've been in car accidents that have left them quadriplegics, cancer patients, those who've been laid off from high-profile jobs where the CEOs took golden parachutes, and others whose financial woes were no fault of their own, and have them keep repeating how "they made the mistake of" something that they didn't have any control over. At the end, the voiceover: "These are the people Republicans think deserve to starve because of their "mistakes". Who's punishing who?"

I find myself disagreeing with the District Court argument that the doubling of the programs spending or the percentage of fraud are compelling reasons to disclose where the money is spent. Either it's public information on its face because it's public money in a public program whose data can be tracked by a provider other than the retailers to reasonably ensure reliability or fark it, no government data is accessible wrt public programs using public funds.

Now, if we could just get this done with gun data and the CDC, we'd be getting somewhere.

Ok, this is going to sound crazy, but why do we care what poor people spend the money on anyway? Whether they spend it on cornflakes, TP or school supplies it still goes back into the economy. Let's bring food stamps, WIC, welfare and unemployment into one benefit program and just send people the money. You could probably slash administrative costs & stimulate the economy at the same time. And you wouldn't have a bunch of busybodies trying to manipulate the free market by inspecting poor people's grocery receipts.
